Welcome to the 6th week recap of our master bathroom remodel. This was the week where we felt like we could see the end in sight. Quartz arrived this week and was completed by the end of the week. Glass guy did final measurements and is scheduled to come before the end of next week. My linen cabinet came together and all that is left is the finish coat. Here’s some pics of the progress for the week.
I am going to be honest here. This was the first time I ever made a cabinet door with a glass insert. It took me three trips to Lowe’s because I broke three pieces of glass. I built this door twice. I am really proud of how both doors turned out. But the first door I glued the glass in place. The second door and any future doors I won’t do that. Each time the glass broke it was because of how I didn’t support the door properly while moving or clamping…so pay special attention when you’re doing that and you should be good. The glass door in the picture above was actually the one that broke. I was too annoyed and in a hurry when I built the second one to take another picture. But you can see it hanging in the next picture.
In a perfect world, if I had only had to pay for it once, this would have been a really affordable diy project. Even buying it twice and the glass three times, it still was. The glass is standard at Lowe’s and they cut it for you for free. The panes are 12×36 and cost $15 each. I bought 24×36 pieces and they cut them in half. I cut the dados in the wood with my table saw and ran it through twice as the glass was about 1.25 blade widths thick.
At some point this week Mike also found time to convert the two crappy lights in our closet into can lights and added four more. That’s six can lights total. The lighting in there is amazing now.
Next week we will get the glass installed on the shower and then install the bathroom tile floor. We’re closing the gap people. I can see the end is near!
